Studs Terkel, Chicago Legend

"Curiosity did not kill this cat" is what author, activist, actor, radio and television pioneer and Chicago legend (and UofC Law Alum) Studs Terkel claimed as his epitaph.  Studs died at his home on the North Side on Friday.

Studs Terkel's page has "Conversations with America", a collection of interviewed for his books and his radio program.

As a lifelong Chicagoan, I grew up with Studs on the radio and have seen and learned much about Chicago by reading his books, listening to him talk, and hearing him listen.
